Re: Today's Reports of Statue -
Rosemary Kennedy's story was pretty much concealed by her parents. Supposedly, when she was about to be born, the doctor wasn't there and the nurse held back the delivery which resulted in some brain damage. She was able to read and write although she was slow but she was functioning. At some point in her younger years she started misbehaving with men and was generally wild that was thought to be due to her brain damage. A newer technique was being used that sometimes had success with mental situations, a lobotomy. One was performed. it left her unable to talk or move. After extensive physical therapy, she regain some of her movement..but it was at this point she was confined.
